The Emperor's New Clothes


Intro: A  D 

Verse 1
A           D                          A                         D 
   It seems years since you held the baby while I wrecked the bedroom  
A                  D                  A                        D 
   You said it was dangerous after Sunday and I knew you loved me  
A              D                      A                       D 
   He thinks I just became famous and that's what messed me up but he's wrong  
A                    D                       A               D 
How could I possibly know what I want when I was only twenty-one?  
A                         D              A                         D 
   There's millions of people to offer advice and say how I should be  
A              D                A          D 
   But they're twisted and they will never be  
A      D              A                    D 
   Any influence on me but you will always be  
A           D          A          D 
   You will always be  

A D If I treated you mean A D I really didn't mean to A D A D But you know how it is and how a pregnancy can change you
Verse 2 A D A D I see plenty of clothes that I like but I won't go anywhere nice for a while A D A D All I want to do is just sit here and write it all down and rest for a while A D A D I can't bear to be in another city one where you are not A D A D I would return to nothing without you if I'm your girlfriend or not
A D Maybe I was mean A D But I really don't think so A D A D You asked if I'm scared and I said so
Verse 3 A D A D Everyone can see what's going on A D A D They laugh `cause they know they're untouchable not because what I said was wrong A D A D Whatever it may bring I will live by my own policies A D A D I will sleep with a clear conscience I will sleep in peace
A D Maybe I was mean A D But I really don't think so A D A D You asked for the truth and I told you A D Through their own words A D They will be exposed A D They've got a severe case of A D The emperor's new clothes A D The emperor's new clothes A D The emperor's new clothes
